LUSAKA – The ruling Patriotic Front (PF) returnee, Chishimba Kambwili has said God rejected opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema to govern the nation of Zambia.
The controversial former Roan legislator said the five times Hichilema has lost are a clear proof that God rejected him to rule adding that UPND has been calling itself the biggest political party for years, even in MMD but nothing has changed.
Speaking when featured on Kokoliko radio on Tuesday, the talkative Kambwili said God knows the crooked ways of Hichilema that is why he will never give him chance to rule.
“That person is a crook, God knows that giving a crook chance to govern, he will destroy the nation. “He crooked Zambians in 1990’s, we have not forgotten and God knows about it, so you think such a person can rule, never,” said Kambwili.
“Even Zambians have rejected him. If they wanted him they would have voted for him long time ago.
“Our founding father Micheal Sata only lost three times and won. He even told us that if he loses fourth time, he will pave way for others.
“But this Hichilema has he done that even after losing five time? No! That means he is up to something,” he said.
The situation in the copper rich nation has become tense in the last few weeks as the country readies for much anticipated General Elections on August 12.
Bookmakers have tipped incumbent Edgar Chagwa Lungu to win a fourth term even though he faces a stiff challenge from Hichilema, a darling of the people and serial election loser.
